Lecture : Yves Klein le philosophe by Klaus Ottmann
Date & Time: Wednesday, October 6, 7:00 p.m.
Location: Whale & Star.
Lecture Fee: $ 5.Ottmann will attempt to describe the intellectual milieu of one of the most influential artists of our time: Yves Klein. Klein was an agitator of ideas, who used his considerable charisma to propagate social change through art. Like most artists, Klein was a “conceptual personality.” When he theorized about his artistic practice, he did so by speculating out of a general milieu that included philosophical, scientific, and political ideas. With his writings and public talks, as with his art, Klein intended to promote his vision of a future of absolute artistic and social freedom and his belief in “le grand Art absolu et total,” the great, absolute, and total Art.

Klaus Ottmann is currently the Robert Lehman Curator for The Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, New York and as of October 1 he will be the Curator-at-Large and Director of the Center for the Study of Modern Art at The Phillips Collection in Washington, DC.

Tom Wesselmann Draws
Major exhibition of the Pop artist’s most intimate worksThe exhibition, which spans more than four and a half decades – from 1959 to 2004 – includes more than one hundred works, many of them large in scale and created from materials not usually associated with drawing, including steel, aluminum, fabric and molded plastic. Several large-scale finished drawings and preparatory works for the Great American Nude as well as for a second series, Bedroom Paintings, are featured in the exhibition. Most of the drawings in the show have never been seen outside the artist’s studio before now.

A Cincinnati native who came to New York in 1956 to attend art classes at Cooper Union, Tom Wesselmann was one of the originators of Pop Art. Along with Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist and Jim Dine, Wesselmann created a body of works that helped define the visual identity of America in the 1960s.

In time, Pop Art became one of the best known movements in the history of art.

Collection of Dr. Arturo and Liza Mosquera
Co-Curated by Cristina & Vivian Nosti a.k.a.

The South Florida-based couple has been collecting contemporary art for over 20 years and their collection presently includes over a thousand works. For this exhibition, co-curators Cristina Nosti and Vivian Nosti, (a sister team that for the purposes of their artistic collaborations are known as Duo Nosti) have selected over 85 original works by more than 70 contemporary Cuban and Cuban-American artists, including painting, sculpture, works on paper, and photographs.

In 2000, the couple began showing artwork from their collection at Dr. Mosquera’s orthodontic office in the Westchester neighborhood of Miami-Dade County. They established a quarterly program of exhibits, “Art @ Work”, in the lobby of the office and created a print newsletter that served as a mini-catalog of each show. The word began to spread so they later opened Farside Gallery, a non-commercial, alternative art space, adjacent to Mosquera’s orthodontic practice, to showcase more art.

Giacomo Puccini’s Turandot
The glory and cruelty of ancient China, some of opera's most famous music, and the thrill of heroic voices create the theatrical experience that every opera lover dreams of. Puccini had an unmistakable melodic gift that enriched some of the world's most beloved operas, and Turandot, his final opera, represents the culmination of the Italian tradition of Grand Opera.

This production's Turandot, Lise Lindstrom, and Calaf, Frank Porretta, thrilled Metropolitan Opera audiences this past season, and local favorite Elizabeth Caballero returns to sing Liù. The conductor of FGO's recent Lucia di Lammermoor, Ramon Tebar, returns to lead this outstanding cast.

Carbonell’s sculptures and Marco Otero’s paintings at Beaux Arts Gallery

Manuel Carbonell. Modern Master SculptorAn important collection of maquettes, sculptures, bas-reliefs and monumental sculptures by Cuban Master SculptorManuel Carbonell. His commissioned work as the creator of two of Miami’s most important landmarks, “The Tequesta Family” at the Brickell Avenue Bridge and “El Centinela del Rio” at the entrance of the Miami River in Brickell Key, denotes his more classical and figurative style. The works exhibited at the Gallery are modern, where Carbonell searches for the essence of the form and the absence of detail while giving a sense of monumentality to his work.

We invite you to visit our gallery to see an important collection of the works of Carbonell ranging from maquettes to monumentals, the paintings of Marco Otero and the paintings and sculptures of Mauro Arbiza.

Beaux Arts is pleased to announce we are now representing highly acclaimed Argentinean Master Marco Otero, a painter, sculptor and architect. His work is a derivative of the New York School of Expressionist which took place in the 1960’s. An important collection of his paintings are now on exhibit at the gallery.
